in my opinion, the knicks should stick with rebuilding but if a player like jermaine o'neil or kevin garnett comes around, they have to bite. obviously, they shouldn't give up the whole farm for them but i feel that we could make a trade and still end up with enough players to contend for a championship. for example, maybe we could trade frye or lee, steve francis, and a protected first round draft pick. don't kill me if the salaries doesn't match.
sf q rich
pg nate robinson
sg mardy collins
sf renaldo balkman/jared jeffries
pf frye or lee (whichever we end up keeping)
c malik rose/jerome james (if they can't man the position, maybe the knicks
could pick up a free agent center with their mid-level exception)
OK, in response to theose who disagree...Indiana will not trade JO to us....they already made a big mistake with the golden state trade, get it out of your minds....Garnet is not a prospect, he is not looking at new york, he wants to go to LA with kobe, Gasol is not going anywhere, we dont have the players to give memphis, we have no Big men of his calliber....when gasol came off his injury this season, they won games....im tired of these NBA 2k7 an live 07 trade proposals...come on man, u think we are reaaaally going to get these stars for our current players? lets talk reality here, we need development, not gossip about trades that wont happen. Lets b real knick fans.
On another note, if you match salaries by 4 players to one, that cannot work, if we give up 4 players for garnet or Jo, who will we be getting? trust me, they will take that as an oppertunity to give us a superstar who is aging, dump off 3 contracts on us and they automatically are years ahead of us in rebuilding. I dont know about you guys, but i dont want to see a playoff run, or a championship one year, and garnett gets injured and we're at the bottom of the rung again. I trust that isiah is building a dynasty....Miami wins one with shaq, then what....i want new york to be like Detroit or san antonio. I think with time, frye can be the next tim duncan if he studies his footwork well...collins...maybe the next kidd....balkman, a dennis rodman kinda guy... Dont give up on jerome james as yet....isiah will whip him into shape this summer...along with curry
to put this mildly... IF IT makes any trades this off season... you can bet we get the shaft of the deal...
Only way i'd trade Frye is to get Garnettor Ray Allen. Allen would be the better choice since we're building the team around Curry we need that outside threat and I GUARANTEE that both Curry and Allen would thrive if they are on the court 2gether. If the Knicks trade Frye 4 O'neal u guys will be pissed in the very near future mark my words
This is the way I see it...we have David Lee, Channing Frye, Eddy Curry, Nate Robinson, Mardy Collins, and Renaldo Balkman that are young talented players that we can build around...that is half of our active roster. We don't need another draft pick...we need to get vets that have there head on straight to come in and fill the gaps. We need a player like PJ Brown or someone of that nature. Because if we get another rookie and he's a big man...then who is he going to learn from...Frye? Eddy Curry? David Lee? Unless Patrick Ewing comes in or Mark Aguirre drinks a youth potion then there is no hope for a young big to come in here and advance quickly. The only way they'll be able to learn is from Mark Aguirre or Pat Ewing if he comes in. Which aren't bad options by the way but we need a vet big that Pat Ewing can say hey...play like that guy or do the things he does on defense...as of right now we have no one on the roster that fits that description...
